  • Well constructed path with steps and bridges. The inlet to the waterfall is also capable of great photos.

  • You have to turn down from the main road and drive 9km to the carpark. It's only 15min walk to the waterfall and back. Nice and easy walk.  more »
  • Worth the walk and track not difficult. Some good forest photos on the way and the Falls worth photographing.  more »
  • Very good scenic walk for the very young, elderly and families with kids. It doesn't require super fit people. The track has wooden rail fences on parts where it is narrow. Very safe and much fun for children. A good setting for those awesome photos of children on the tree hollows.
  • The falls looked nice, but not as spectacular as I had imagined. A lot of pictures you see online are log exposure, so I think they look more impressive. Also, beware the water is lower in the summer so it can be more dry during times!
  • An easy walk in and the falls although not that spectacular are worth the look.
  • Beautiful. Nice walk through forest and the waterfall is splendid.
  • A very short, easy walk to these magnificent falls!
